About Me

WEE BIT ABOUT ME AND MY HOBBY:

BORN AND RAISED IN SCOTLAND AND MOVED TO THE U.S.A WITH MY FAMILY AS A TEENAGER

AFTER HIGH SCHOOL JOINED THE US AIR FORCE

WENT TO WORK WITH HORSES FOR TWO YEARS

REALIZING MY TALENTS WERE BETTER SERVED  IN A CRAFT FIELD, I WENT TO WORK IN   SADDLERY FOR 18 YEARS. THE LAST 7 IN MY OWN BUSINESS.

VERY PROUD TO MENTION RIDGLEY DAVIS AT MARYLAND SADDLERY WHO CAME TO WORK FOR ME AS AN APPRENTICE IN THE EIGHTIES. HE IS STILL DOING EXCEPTIONAL WORK AFTER 30 ODD YEARS.

MOVING TO FLORIDA IN THE NINETIES I WENT BACK TO DOING ELECTRICAL WORK WHICH IS WHAT I DID IN THE AIR FORCE. MY LAST THIRTEEN YEARS I WORKED FOR APG ELECTRIC AND RETIRED FROM THERE IN 2012….

IN JANUARY 2017 I TOOK A POTTERY COURSE AT THE DUNEDIN FINE ARTS CENTER AND AFTER THE FIRST THREE HOUR CLASS I CAME HOME AND STARTED BUILDING MY WEE STUDIO. FOLLOWING THAT 18 HOUR COURSE I TOOK AN ADDITIONAL 18 HOURS AT SAN ANTONIO POTTERY IN FLORIDA. COUPLING THE TIME IN CLASS WITH COUNTLESS HOURS WATCHING POTTERS SUCH AS SIMON LEACH ON YOU TUBE I STARTED TO BUILD AN INVENTORY IN MY WEE STUDIO.
